Ukrainian human rights activist deported from Belarus

15.04.2021, 16:04

Ukrainian human rights activist Volodymyr Yavorsky was deported from Belarus and banned for entry for 10 years. He had to leave the country within three days, as Belsat reported.

Volodymyr Yavorsky is the husband of Belarusian activist Tetyana Hatsura-Yavorska, who was detained on April 5.

The court ignored the fact of Vladimir's long stay in Belarus, as well as his non-involvement in the activity of his wife Tetyana Gatsura-Yavorskaya.

Also today, the 10-days term is coming to an end since Tetyana's detention: she must be charged or released.

Yavorsky and his sons Algerd qnd Danylo have already left for Ukraine, as RFE/RL reported.

Volodymyr Yavorsky has Ukrainian citizenship. In total, the family has four children,

As IMI reported, on April 5 in Minsk (Belarus) the police detained three organizers of an exhibition about physicians, including the head of the public association "Zveno", the wife of Ukrainian human rights activist Volodymyr Yavorsky Tetyana Gatsura-Yavorska. Earlier it was reported that she was suspected of "financing the riots."

The exhibition was dedicated to Belarusian doctors and the challenges they have faced over the past year: the COVID-19 pandemic and the politicization of the health care system.
